10 Minute Low Carb One-Skillet Meal
I woke up STARVING on Sunday morning. That’s so unusual for me. I’m not a big breakfast eater. I decided to just make a quick bowl of Tuna Salad so I could get on with my day. Unfortunately my can opener has completely stopped working for some crazy unknown reason, so I got a good morning workout just trying to get into the stupid can. ?? But first I tore apart the entire kitchen looking for my Pampered Chef can opener – which I know is here somewhere! No luck. *pout*
I did finally get the can open and have breakfast, but while placing an order on Amazon later I also ordered a new can opener. I didn’t really do any research, just grabbed the first one I saw. I mean, a can opener is a can opener, right? Not including mine which doesn’t work at all, of course. LOL. I got the Amco Swing-A-Way 407BK Portable Can Opener, Black, by the way (pictured above). I suppose I could have run out to the store – but you know me, I enjoy shopping about as much as I enjoy cooking. ??
But Wait! Brace Yourself… I actually COOKED Lunch!
Yes, you heard that right. It’s not a typo. I “cooked” yesterday. If you can actually call it that, LOL. It was a super easy one-skillet meal that literally only took a few minutes to put together.
But MAN was it good! ??
(no can opener required, thank goodness -lol)
I used half a bag of Tyson Breakfast Sausage Crumbles, and Birds Eye Steamfresh Creamed Spinach. The sausage crumbles cook in a skillet in about 5 minutes. There was very little grease, so I just added three eggs (scrambled in a cup first).
The spinach cooked in the microwave for five minutes while the sausage was cooking, so I added a few heaping spoonfuls of that into the skillet after the eggs:
It looks pretty gross in that picture, I know. Yuck, lol. I also added some cubed Colby Jack cheese. No spices or salt even, and it turns out it didn’t need it. I cooked it (there’s that word again, lol – basically I stirred it around) until it was slightly browned:
After it was done I topped it with a “Dollup of Daisy” – meaning a spoonful of Daisy brand Sour Cream. ??
Oh my gosh… it was DELICIOUS! In fact I ate the entire skillet! It was really meant to be two servings – one for now, one for later. Fortunately the total carb count for both servings was approximately 4 net carbs. ??
You could add all sorts of things into a one-skillet low carb meal like this. A bit of onion or roasted tomato, mushrooms, you name it. It’s less a recipe, and more a “throw whatever you have in the kitchen all into one skillet and top it with sour cream” kind of thing.
Since I expected to have that second serving left, I had to come up with something else for dinner. I had a single slice of the leftover thin crust pizza from yesterday. Actually, I wasn’t very hungry after my huge lunch…

Oh-that sounds good and I think I’ll make that for dinner tonight!!! Thanks! I’ve got some turkey breakfast sausage in the refridge right now.
I made something so good and easy for lunch yesterday. I buy the Joseph low carb pitas(4 net carbs) at Walmart and I made a pizza with one. I used the Walmart brand pizza sauce(4 net carbs per 1/4 cup, only used 2 tbsp), some Armour Turkey Pepperoni, and Italian blend of shredded cheese(Walmart brand of course) and added some fresh Basil I grow and popped it in the toaster oven till toasty and it was DELICIOUS and fast!!
This is a great idea. My girlfriend and I have been going “low carb” for almost 2 months now. She has lost about 10lbs and I have lost 20lbs. The only issue we’ve faced is that while we have a lot of recipes, we start to get bored with the same meals. Seeing this one gives us something to add to ours. If you have any other low carb recipes, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org thank you and congrats on doing such a great job!
Be sure to check out Pinterest. Tons of great low-carb meal ideas there! Also, Lynn has partnered with another to start a 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. Be sure to join that as well as the Facebook group. Lots of great info and sharing going on there.
LOL that IS funny! ?? I’m really glad I did too. It’s been so much fun to take this journey public and make friends to “eat with.” Speaking of not cooking though, I haven’t been in the kitchen for three days straight. All fast food & take out: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/3386/nine-pounds-down/ LOL…
